We will explore:
ACTIVE Allergies…Cause very visible, uncomfortable allergic reactions includinghives, rashes, swelling, wheezing, runny eyes, runny nose, etc.
HIDDEN Allergies…Cause few visible allergic reactions.Patients complain of poor function of body and/or mind including fatigue, anxiety, mental fogginess, back pain, arthritis, malaise, etc. and don’t know the reason why.Two Types of Allergies
FACT: Most allergy sufferers have both types.
The tendency to develop an allergy is inherited. But, allergies to specific substances are not necessarily genetically passed on.
Piecing together the allergy puzzle…
Neither of my parents has allergies and I’ve had them all my life! Why?
Possible causes of childhood allergies:- Parents may have had an illness or condition that altered the child’s genetic expression- Mom may have been exposed to radiation, chemicals or drugs while pregnant- Proteins in maternal bloodstream pass through placenta – sensitivities can develop while fetus is in the womb
Neither of my parents has allergies and I’ve only just developed them as an adult! Why?
Possible causes of adult onset allergies:- Exposure to environmental toxins and chemicals ▪ ex: mercury in fish, food additives and preservatives, air and water pollution- Parasites▪ 85% of all patients test positive for parasites▪ local sources: restaurants, water, improperly cooked meats, improperly washed vegetables- Major illnesses- Severe reactions to drugs- Exposure to radiation
Insults to the body (parasites, pollution, heavy metals) cause…

Chiropractic Non-Invasive Desensitization:4 Integrated Components for Healing Allergies Naturally
Nutritional Supportand Detoxification
NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy EliminationTechniques):- NAET was discovered by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad in 1983.- NAET is a non-invasive, drug free solution used to eliminate allergies of all types and intensities.- NAET is a blend of selective energy balancing, testing and treatment procedures from acupressure, chiropractic, nutritional, and kinesiological disciplines of medicine.- One allergen is treated at a time. Basic essential nutrientsare treated during the first few visits. Chemicals and environmental allergens are treated after completing about ten basic essential nutrients. Each patient’s length of treatment differs based on the health of their immune andnervous systems.
Applied Kinesiology (A.K.)
- Applied Kinesiology (A.K.) is a system using muscle testing to getfeedback on neurological function.
- The methodology is concerned primarily with neuromuscular function as it relates to the structural, chemical and mental physiologic regulatory mechanisms. - A.K., which originated within the chiropractic profession, is an approach to clinical practice, with multidisciplinary applications.
Applied Neurology:- Applied Neurology is used to reactivatesensory nerve fibers in the central nervous axis.- These dulled nerve fibers can be reactivated to a higher level of integration and normal neurological functioning.
Nutritional Support and Detoxification Includes:- Enzymes to improve digestion and balance pH- Herbs and nutrients to restore liver function (Phase I and Phase II detoxification pathways)- Omega 3 Fatty Acids to protect cellular membranes while going through detoxification- Low Level Laser therapy to drain toxins from the liver
Nutritional Supportand Detoxification
The low level laser clears neurological disorganization and helps eliminate allergies by:
• regenerating nerves
• draining the lymphatic system
• draining toxins from organs
• increasing nutrition to the area
• increasing oxygenation to the area
